Organic Peppermint Essential Oil UK
Organic Peppermint Essential Oil UK (Mentha piperita) from the United Kingdom (UK) is Therapeutic Quality Organic Pure Essential Oil steam distilled from the organic flowering tops. Family: Lamiaceae.
Description and Botanical Information
Peppermint is a hybrid cross between water mint and spearmint. Peppermint grows all over the world. The USA is the largest producer of peppermint essential oil, but U.K., Eastern Europe, Italy and Morocco are also producers of Peppermint Essential Oil.
Peppermint Essential Oil Extraction
The peppermint leaves and flowers are picked just before maturity. 600 lbs. of fresh peppermint plant will yield about 2 pounds of essential oil from steam distillation.
Our organic peppermint essential oil, UK is clear to pale yellow or pale olive green, and it has a strong, fresh minty aroma. If it’s not properly stored, peppermint oil will darken and become thick and eventually turn into resin. Aromatically, peppermint essential oil is difficult to blend and can overpower other aromas.
We love our organic U.K. peppermint oil but, for a little less cost, we also offer an Indian peppermint oil.
